Short but Sweet Books for the Beach

Slim, but scintillating, these books more than make up for their limited page counts.

There’s nothing better than a short and engrossing book you can read in one sitting. You get the satisfaction of crossing a book off your list, without a huge time commitment. These books and short story collections have all the emotional impact, complex characters, and engaging plot lines of much longer books. Perfect for an August afternoon!
